Re: Raiders player signing speculation 2020

Tedesco, rts, and healthy trbojivic are the only trades i would make. Anything else is a destabilising sidestep that doesnt improve on what we have enough (especially when you factor in price). I love the defensive work of cnk and am happy for him to be a ruck it out fullback for us. Id much prefer...

Re: Full strength forward pack

Sutton has Lui covered for run meters pre and post contact. I love Sutton’s no holds barred attack and defensive clout. But Lui has him covered for handling, penalties conceded, passing before the line, try saves, offloads and strips. But for me it’s Lui’s defence on the line and how he stops offlo...

Re: Full strength forward pack

Absolute bubble baths all-round if you want to drop Sutton. Long, hot, finger-wrinkling bubble baths. Dude makes the third most metres on average behind Papa and Taps, and the most tackles out of all our middles. Replace him with smaller bodies and motors like Young or Lui who struggle to push 80 a...

I thought they got that right too. It was as marginal as can be, but his arm wrapped around Croker for a milli-second.

Can somebody please show me some frames? I didn't see a good replay yesterday.

Either way, the Raiders were carrying on with a lot of nonsense in that period where Croker was off the field and the referees were deserved in being annoyed at them.

I'll say this, the bunker was correct on last two captain's challenges despite the commentators and the plethora of social media comments otherwise.
